2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle best before 03/13/13. Nose is lightly grainy, definite German lager yeast, a little sweetness with the pretzel dough and probably some Munich. Pours a beautiful dark amber-brown body and a short tan head. Very crisp full body, dense (and essentially impenetrable, simple) malt, mostly dry with a spritz of citrus on the back, hops are minimal but not absent, and there’s stability despite the light edge forward in malt. Water seems extra hard.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp deep amber coloured body with pungent ruby highlights and a two centimetre tall tan head with a lot of movement in the body. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, nuts and a hint of earth - not too much there. Light-bodied; Sharp toasted malt notes with a little earthiness, some light sweet toffee flavours and a hint of grass and herbal notes. Aftertaste relatively light with the malt and a little sugar coming through. Overall, a pretty underwhelming beer with a good malty flavour, but not much else and not really worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 07-February-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 16-February-2013.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – Light brown color with a thin head. The lager had a malty flavor with some light spices in the finish which was also very dry. Some smokey and deep dark malts used.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/12, Bottled 11/16/12
Aroma: The nose has caramel malts, some doughy notes, earth, and a little paper
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-orange color with a foamy beige head leaving medium-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, with a medium sweetness, and a light earthy hop bitterness
Palate: It is light-medium, has a nice, clean feel, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Weirdly, I’m on my 3rd straight Reddish beer of the day (not intentional, even though it’s Christmas Weekend, it must just be a case of them all being Winter seasonals). Anyway, this is a decent beer, but nothing stands out for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear bronze with a dense soapy beige head. The aroma is bready with a bit of toast, lager roundedness and a touch of dry caramel. It has a fairly light crisp body with a mild amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with dry caramel, some spice, crackers and a hint of minerals. The finish is very short lasting with a hint of hops and mild fruit. Decent.

My thoughts on this one is that this is just another okay amber. Malty and I guess true to style, just not that tasty to me.
